I don’t cry too often when watching movies, and I’ve absolutely never cried while watching a movie trailer. However, the trailer for Boyhood, Richard Linklater’s newest film which was actually filmed over 12 years with the same actors as they naturally aged and follows the life of a boy named Mason from age 5 to 18, legitimately brought tears to my eyes. Similar to Linklater’s Before trilogy, Boyhood appears to be focusing on the genuine, honest realities of life, its triumphs and hardships. It looks absolutely stunning and is the movie I’m most anticipating this summer.
Boyhood hits theaters on July 11.
I’m sure many of you remember at some point seeing the classic Robin Williams movie, Ms. Doubtfire, where the actor poses as a nanny to spend time with his family after his wife divorces him. Basically Robin Williams just playing a woman. It is a comedy classic but came out a long time ago in 1993.
Well, it’s apparently going to receive a sequel 20 years later. That’s right, supposedly Fox is pushing forward with Ms. Doubtfire 2 with both Robin Williams and the original director, Chris Columbus, both on board. This is really interesting, but just seems super unnecessary because the original film is a classic that should just be left that way. Don’t try to fix what’s not broken, I believe, is the saying I’m looking for, but seriously.. why now? What makes Ms. Doubtfire so special that the studio feels the need to make this movie so long after the first was released?
This seems really ridiculous to me, and honestly, I have no interest in whatever they put out because I feel like any sequel they try to release in the near future will just be a junk comedy that gets dumped into the same category as the other generic bad comedies that are released each year. We’ll see if any real official information about the project is announced, but this is apparently happening…
Awhile ago it was announced that Anna Paquin’s Rogue was in a scene for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it ended up being cut… or so we thought.
It turns out that Paquin’s name was still featured in the final DoFP trailer released yesterday. Fox has officially confirmed that Rogue will be in the movie, but basically as a quick cameo rather than having a significant role.
I’m curious how she will even come into play but I definitely wish we could have Rogue back in the action with everyone else; however, it’s going to stink when we notice her on screen and she’ll be gone before we know it. Either way, it’s a shame they had to cut her scene, but maybe we’ll see her in the followup film, X-Men: Apocalypse.
I’m really pumped for Days of Future Past and the third trailer even made the movie look better than before. Assuming they continue their hot streak with this and First Class, I think X-Men: Apocalypse could be one really crazy movie.
Well, it looks like funny guys Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly will be teaming up once again with Adam McKay for a new film titled Border Guards. McKay has been attached to pretty much everything Ferrell has done, so it’s no surprise that he wants to bring his successful comedy duo back for another round.
This film would focus on Ferrell and Reilly as “two hapless but earnest friends who decide to give purpose to their lives by protecting America’s borders from illegal immigrants. In the process they find themselves accidentally stranded in Mexico without identification and must sneak back into the USA,” and sounds like it could be a pretty good fit for the two.
It feels like Step Brothers came out so long ago, yet, I still hear it quoted very, very often. Hopefully Border Guards can be another solid comedy with Ferrell and Reilly rather than a money grab with some mediocre jokes. I’m sure the chemistry between these guys will work out well, but I just hope the content is well written. I’m not sure what to expect from this movie, but definitely want to see a trailer – although that might not come for awhile.
Alright everyone, it seems like a trip back to the Grid might be closer than we think! While there is certainly no official confirmation of Tron 3 being a sure thing, Tron:Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, has a story in mind if he is chosen to direct another installment of the series.
Apparently his plan for Tron 3 would be to pick up where Legacy left off and we dive right into the real world relationship between Sam (Garrett Hedlund) and Quorra (Olivia Wilde) and the possibilities of her powers. Kosinski also brings up Cillian Murphy’s character, Edward Dillinger Jr., and the paralleling father/son dynamics that would be seen.
Kosinski has a lot of ideas for the possible third Tron film and I really hope Disney brings him back. I actually liked Tron: Legacy a lot and thought it was a cool modern addition to such a classic movie. I really hope the third movie does come out at some point and continues where Legacy left us.
Hopefully more news will come out about this soon, but it’s just nice to hear some talk of returning to the Grid!
There have been rumors swirling about Channing Tatum being discussed to play Gambit in future X-Men movies and also a possible spin-off of some sorts, and it looks like those rumors are slowly becoming more true. Tatum announced in an interview that he has talked with producer Lauren Schuler Donner.
Not much was stated about the meeting, but Tatum seems to really have an interest in the role and hopes that everything can come together. He finds appeal in Gambit’s borderline heroic nature and how he still enjoys drinking and smoking but “happens to have a good moral center.”
Tatum has even gone as far as starting to work on an accent if everything does work out and he gets a chance at the role, which is honestly pretty cool. I’d love to see Gambit make an actual appearance in the X-Men films and this past week Bryan Singer brought up that he hopes to include the card-slinger and Nightcrawler into the Days of Future Past follow up, X-Men: Apocalypse, so maybe there is a chance for Tatum to get in on these movies.
Personally, I have been warming up to Tatum a lot and think he is more diverse than people give him credit for. He certainly looks like a superhero and I think he could pull off this role well, but we’ll just have to wait and see!
It’s been a mystery about what will happen with Paul Walker’s character for Fast & Furious 7, but it had been stated that the actor would be in the film and not killed off. It turns out Paul Walker’s two brothers, Caleb and Cody have actually joined the F&F7 production and will act as physical fill ins to complete the remaining action scenes that their brother cannot.
The Fast & Furious franchise has, since the beginning, heavily promoted the importance of family and I think this is a really nice move on the company’s part to reflect that. The Fast & Furious Facebook page made a long post about this decision but it all seems to be summed up with one sentence, “Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us, too.”
It’s still sad to have lost Walker at such a young age, but moving forward, fans can at least look forward to his final appearance in the franchise and know that he will receive an honorable sendoff.
